Chapter 29:

Warrington Sprite Revisited

A Terrible Evil Villain And Their Destiny

“You are terrible at this.” Bryson said as he sat in the back of the car, he looked up from the book he was reading and was now watching Nico attempt to parallel park it in between two other cars.

“This isn’t suppose to be part of my job!” Nico cried out as the tail of the car nearly smashed into the headlight of another car.

“If you hit something, I’ll dock it from your pay.” Bryson said rubbing a hand to his temple.

“Gaaah!” Nico said as he tried to squeeze the car in place.


After several minutes of the car repeating the movements of going back and forth and making very little headway, Nico finally managed to park the car. Bryson with a very tired sigh opened the door to his car and got out.

“It’s good to know that being a valet would be the worst decision you would ever make.” Bryson commented.

“Errr, this doesn’t usually happen.” Nico said rubbing the back of his neck in embarrassment.

“Whatever, let’s-” Bryson stopped talking when he saw of all people Lila Frost walking towards them.

“What are you doing here?” Bryson questioned.

“Oh, I was watching you trying to park for the last ten minutes.” Lila teased.

“It- it didn’t take that long!” Nico said sheepishly.

“Felt that long.” Bryson said.

“Give me a break.” Nico said exasperated.

“Anyways, why are you here?” Bryson asked, turning back towards Lila.

“Oh, actually I was heading to the magic place.”

“The Warrington Sprite?” Nico asked.

“Yeah, there.”

“Why?” Bryson asked.

“I think Lottie is going to be there.” Lila said.

“Why?” Nico asked.

“Well… she left me a letter.” Lila said handling over a folded sheet of paper over to Bryson.

Snatching it he quickly read through the contents of the note.

                               Hey Lila! I’m going to go investigate, come back soon!”

                                                                           - Lottie

This explains nothing.” Bryson said staring at the note.

“I may have told Lottie that you found the place weird.” Lila said.

Bryson glared over at Lila, “Why?”

“I didn’t think it would be much of a problem.” Lila said defensively, “I didn’t think that it would be much of a problem, you said it wasn’t a problem.”

“I said maybe. A big maybe at that.” Bryson snapped. Shacking his head he gave an angry sigh, “Okay, we’re going to the Warrington Sprite first.”

“We are?” Nico said in surprise.

“Wait, why?” Lila asked.

“You know how I said that something maybe wrong the place?”


“I lied, something is most likely wrong with the place.” Bryson said turning to Nico, “Reese get us to the Warrington Sprite.”

“What? I just parked it!”

“Well, then unpark it and drive.”

With a frustrated sigh Nico got back into the driver’s seat. Opening a door in the back, Bryson got in, then Lila opened the other side and sat down.

“What are you doing?” Bryson asked.

“Joining you.”

Narrowing his eyes towards her he asked, “Why?”

“It’s my sister. I followed you to warehouse of killers, you think I won’t put my neck out on the line for my own sister?” She asked.

Bryson paused and pondered for a brief moment before relenting, “Fine. Reese drive.”


“I asked you a question.” Edvard Bo demanded, “You better start answering.”

The large man at his side spoke, “Let’s stop wasting time and deal with them already.” He then gripped his spear tightly.

“Agreed, they’ve seen the contents already.” The other older man on Edvard’s other side said.

“Don’t be too hasty, that’s a Coldwater that just broke in.” Edvard said coldly.

“A Cold- What?!” The elderly man exclaimed.

“More reason to deal with them.” The spear wielder said taking a step forward.

“Hold it.” Edvard said, bringing out a hand to push the spearman back, “You don’t just kill a Coldwater and get away with it, we have to be smart.”

“Okay, so what should we do.” The elderly man asked.

“Tie them up for now, we’ll find a way to dispose of them soon.” Edvard said.

“Isn’t this a bit extreme?” Sable asked, “This is a really bad impression for you.”

“Well, not much options considering you found our secret. Can’t be letting you go.” Edvard said with a shrug, “So before we need to start getting violent, please tell us why you two are down here.”

“Will that stop you from getting violent?” Sable asked looking around trying to find a way out.

“Nope. But it would make it less painful for you girl.” The spearman said as he took a step forward.

Sable gritted her teeth and stepped backwards, hands tightening around her pen knife, and she tried to think of a way out.

“This might be painful for you.” Lottie said, suddenly armed with a miniature canon. Pressing the trigger of the weapon it gave off a small humming sound before blasting out a wave of shimmering blue energy.

The elderly man and spearman dove out of the way while Edvard brought his arm up and created a small ward protecting him from the force of the blast. The aftershock of the blast still sent him careening into the bottom of the stairs.

“Darrgh!” Edvard groaned out.

Sable turned to Lottie in surprise, “Where did you get that?”

“From the weapon box.” Lottie replied with a shrug, “It’s pretty cool.” She said as she did a small pose with the canon.

“Grrr.” Edvard grunted as he pulled himself up, “Get them.” He seethed.

“Get more weapons!” Sable shouted as the other two got back up.

“Way ahead of you!” Lottie shouted before shooting another blast at the spearman.

The spearman raised the shaft of his spear in time to absorb the strike. Upon the blast making contact with the spear a crack of light filled the room. As the light disappeared, Sable and Lottie saw the man get sent crashing into a cabinet.

Sable ran over to the weapon box trying to find something to use.

“Enough.” The elderly man said angrily, stretching out his hand and the canon was covered with a thin veil of purple before being yanked from Lottie’s hands.

“Uh oh.” Lottie gulped.

“What are you going to do now child?” He taunted.

“This.” Sable said as she activated an explosive charge and threw it at him.

Dodging out of the way the charge hit the ground from behind him and exploded into a massive cloud of purple smoke that filled the room.

“Damn it, I can’t see!” The elderly man screamed out.

“Edvard! Why the hell was that armed?” The spearman yelled from the other side of the basement as smoke engulfed him.

“Because no one is suppose to be here!” Edvard screamed back.

“Help!” Lottie cried out.

Sable squinted through the smoke and was able to make out the outline of Lottie being lifted in the air by the elderly man.

“Got you now you little- AHHH!” He screamed as Sable stabbed the penknife into his back leg. Instinctively he dropped Lottie who scampered off and pulled the blade out.

“I’m going to kill you!” He screamed as Sable and Lottie disappeared back into the smoke.

“Enough.” Edvard spat out.

All of a sudden, the smoke in the room began getting blown around. The sound of a vacuum could be heard as all the smoke was sucked into the tip of Edvard’s wand. Very quickly the smoke dissipated, and the room cleared.

Sable and Lottie then found themselves standing back to back in the middle of the room with all three of them surrounding them.

“Alright girls, playtime’s over.” Edvard scowled.

“Yeah, it’s time for my sister to return home.” A voice behind him said.

Whipping around Edvard saw standing from the foot of the stairs Nico Reese and behind him standing higher up on the steps a very unhappy looking Bryson Coldwater.
